. and chuck todd, ben wrote about how the pro-israel lobby won the chuck hagel fight, saying in part this. "the good news for hagel's allies and defenders is that schumer offered his tentative support for the former nebraska republican senator. the bad news for hagel's allies among realist foreign policy thinkers and on the foreign policy left is that the nominee appears to have gotten schumer's support by repudiating virtually everything they liked about him. this was always a likely endpoint of the battle over hagel, which has been a proxy war over israel and over a broader foreign policy philosophy, but it has come with remarkable speed and comprehensiveness." chuck todd, where does it stand right now? >> well, it's funny you say that. this says what i've learned and why -- how chuck hagel won chuck schumer, ben's right, it was over hagel sort of repudiating some of his positions, in particular, on iran. so one of the things that chuck hagel made clear to schumer is hey, the first briefing i got on the pentagon was about military preparations to take action against iran, if necessary.
